Continuous Integration Key features

  • Build Automation
  • Deployment Automation
  • Daily Commits
  • Unit and Kernel tests
  • Checking Drupal Code standards
  • Updating Database
  • Generating Reports

Common challenge for enabling Drupal on Azure

  • To make the Software Release Process automated by Continuous Deployment to Microsoft Azure Production.
  • The primary task to use Drupal on Cloud as compared to traditional physical servers.
